Dog Training & Ownership : How to Care for a German Shepherd


Hello, my name is Zephyr Clarke-Dolberg, from
Miami Dog Training. In this clip we’re going to talk about, how to care for a German Shepherd.
German Shepherds are one of my favorite dogs, and one of my very first favorite dogs. Super
intelligent, and hairy, as you can see, so grooming, regular grooming is definitely necessary.
They tend to have hip problems as they get older, so that’s something that you’re going
to want to look out for, get their hips X-rayed after two years old. They’re serious working
dogs, German Shepherds, so giving them a job can be essential in them living out their
life to their fullest. So sometimes what I’ll do with Tuffy here, is put a backpack on her,
and let her work. Giving her a job, and giving her something to do with her energy, is definitely
essential in a working breed, and this is the number one working breed. This is Zephyr
Clarke-Dolberg, and this has been, how to care for a German Shepherd.

    the rate of elbow dysplasia is equally high in this breed and if you suspect hip problems they should be x-rayed and submitted to OFA well before 2?

    Hi, I have a 4 & half year old german shephard. As a puppy his training was going very well. I taught him de basic commands etc. But thn my dad became terminally ill & I couldn't really focus on de dog for sometime. Now he remembers de basic commands but he's not properly offleash traind. I feel bad for being careless but I wanna keep the dog. Can I still fully train my dog at 4 and half? I m willing 2 give him the time and attention.
    PS I can't afford any trainers or clubs at de moment.

    Anyone else notice he says German shepherd almost after every sentence? O_O

    @mehtabb1 maybe to create an impression in the dog's mind that it's actually helping you do something. working doesn't necessarily mean making your dog pull a tonne of bricks.
